Indy News & Notes: Ex-WWE Stars No Showing, PWG Weekend Events, WWL iPPVs, More
– Sean Waltman, Billy Gunn and Michael Tarver did not show up for the PRWA, as PWMania previously reported. Waltman did an interview with prwrestling.com where he took shots at PRWA promoter Victor Siebens; Waltman said that he had never spoken with Siebens and learned he was booked back in December but thought he was being booked for WWL’s debut show. He added that he believed he would be “working for Hugo Savinovich, who I’ve known for over 20 years. I didn’t know that WWL’s show had been pushed to April and that Hugo was not involved in this show. They used his name all the time.” Waltman added that he didn’t see the tickets until Friday when he called airline and was told that a ticket had been canceled under his name that would have left Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, five hours away from where he lives.
– WWL’s upcoming debut event “Idols of Wrestling,” which goes down on April 21st, is planned to be an iPPV and will be their first TV taping of matches as well. The shows up to this point have been used to promote the debut event and to introduce their concept as well as the talent.
– Below are the results for WWC’s “La Hora de la Verdad” (Moment of Truth) from Saturday, which drew about 2,000 people:
* Zcion became the new WWC Junior Heavyweight champion after defeating “Diabolico”.
* Referee Pelayo Vazquez and Barrabas Jr. went to a “No Contest” after Barrabas Jr. attacked Vazquez with a foreign object and knocked him out.
* “El Leon” Apollo defeated “Bad Man” Andy Levine w/ Orlando Toledo
* “Sons of Samoa” defeated Abbad & Sebastian Guerra. After the match they kept attacking both Abbad and Guerra until Thunder and Lightning made the save and the Samoans ran for cover.
* In the “Mask vs Hair” match, “Super Fenix” retained his mask by defeating Chris Angel.
* In a boxing match, “El Ilegal-Chicano” reclaimed the Puerto Rico Heavyweight belt when he defeated via KO Samson Walker. After the match, Walker’s manager Orlando Toledo, was also KO’d by Chicano.
* The match between Rey Gonzalez and the self-proclaimed “Puertorican Dream” Invader #1 went to a “No-Contest”. Towards the end of the match, Gonalez had Invader locked in her figure four,when out come Carlito and Savio Vega to attack Gonzalez. This brought out Thunder & Lightning again, only to be ambushed by “Sons of Samoa”, who didn’t waste to bust them open and leave them a bloody mess. Vega and Carlito took advantage of this and started the final match of the night.
* Thunder & Lightning defeated Savio Vega and Carlito Caribbean Cool after Invader #1 interfered in the match, knocking out Vega with his “heart punch” and this way leaving everyone wondering where is this story going.
